Serum and Oil: Your New Skincare Holy Grail

Level up your skincare routine!
by Alliah Delgado

You’ve already asked so many people about their routine and have watched tons of skincare vlogs. Now, we are both here hoping to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I know you have been reading articles about skincare and you’ve encountered the use of serum and oil. But what is the difference between these two? Because it really hurts when you can’t find the perfect skincare holy grail.

You spend lots of bucks and efforts just to achieve the glowing skin. Why can’t I just have a skin that is flawless and not sensitive? This is just one of the many thoughts I am having every time I look at the mirror contemplating my life decisions.



They both provide nourishment to the skin. The difference? It’s the composition. Some serums are being marketed as oil, thanks to the Korean skincare regimen that became hit to all skincare fans.


The serum is lightweight, the reason it can penetrate the skin and correct underlying skincare problems. Oil’s composition is heavier than water-based serum. Thus, it provides hydration and nutrition. The thing with oils is you have to choose the one that suits your skin type.


Now that you know the basic similarities and differences between these two, here is a short list of Serum and Oils in the market.


The Body Shop Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-oil


For Dry Skin, this serum-in-oil should be used overnight for a better result. It is non-greasy when applied. Your skin will be refreshed and moisturize the morning after.


Tony Moly The Black Tea London Classic oil



This is for brightening the skin complexion, with soft and supple result. The good thing about this oil, you can use it not just on your face but also can be applied in the hair and nails. Can be used by oily skin as it leaves dry after being used.


Nacific Fresh Herb Serum


This skincare product went famous after Korean actress Jun Ji Hyun revealed that this is her skincare holy grail. I guess we know now where she gets her everlasting youth!

It is known to be a folk remedy for wound healing and treating its scars. It doesn’t just make the skin look brighter and firmer but it also exfoliates and regenerates the cell in the skin with its fatty acids and antioxidants.



Keep it simple in picking your skincare product. Decide what your skin really need and don’t overdo things as it may bring more damage. Lastly, pray that your new holy grail solves the problem.
